Discover the Magic of The Massif central

This little known area of France provides a wide variety of cycling to discover.  From climbing and descending some of the many local river gorges to more relaxing undulating routes alongside lakes, rivers and forests suitable for less experienced cyclists.  In addition there are more challenging rides in the Cantal mountains (Puy Mary 1588m) and in the Puy de Dome area up to the ski resorts of Superbesse and Mont Dore.

Covid 19 Update – April 2022

From 2020 onwards, we have implemented new procedures for cleaning and hygiene, and to facilitate friendly but social distancing.  Please click HERE to go to our special page for Covid 19 information.  The French Health / Vaccination pass requirement has now ended excepting for visiting certain places such as hospitals and theatres.

The UK has now been moved to France’s green list for travel, meaning that travellers coming from the country are now only subject to minimal restrictions.  Fully vaccinated UK travellers need only present proof of vaccination to the travel operator, and no longer need to fill in a sworn statement confirming that they are not experiencing Covid symptoms.

Unvaccinated UK people over the age of 12 must present the negative result of a PCR test taken in the 72 hours before or an antigen test taken in the 48 hours before their journey to France begins.  Alternatively, they can also show a certificate of recovery dating from between 11 days and six months prior. If you have had Covid and registered your test result in the UK, you will be able to find a QR code in the NHS app which can act as your certificate.

Once they arrive in France, all UK travellers may continue with their onward journey without having to undergo any tests or self-isolation measures.

We are sure that we will all be living with Covid for the foreseeable future with some distancing measures and hygiene protocols in place into 2022. However there are now no reasons why you  cannot enjoy cycling with us in a safe environment.
